As head coach Carolina Morace continues to put her stamp on the Canadian team, she believes that playing opposition of the highest caliber, such as the number-one ranked Americans, is imperative. “To play this level of match is very important because we are yet not ourselves at the top level in the world,” said Morace. “We played only two days ago, so we will not have time to make full changes. We did a good job because we played against the best team in the world.”



Canada completed its final training session Tuesday evening at Blackbaud Stadium in sweltering conditions. The picturesque soccer-specific stadium is situated in a marshy area. Several members of the Canadian party took the opportunity to snap pictures of the crocodiles who reside in the nearby swamps.



Canadian captain Christine Sinclair enters the match looking to reach a pair of career milestones. She currently sits on 99 career goals. She could become the 10th 100-goal scorer in women’s international football come Wednesday night. Also, her expected Wednesday-night appearance will mark the 132nd appearance of her career, tying the national record currently held by Andrea Neil.



“These games are very important for us as we have a new coach and we are trying to learn a new system,” said Sinclair. “We need to play games in order to become comfortable with the things the coaching staff is asking us to do. To play against the Americans is a great challenge; they are the best team in the world right now. To be the best you have to play the best.”



Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, will play their 47th all-time match against the USA Wednesday evening. Earlier this week, Canada lost 0:1 to USA on 19 July in Rochester, NY. Canada also lost the first game of the series 0:4 to USA on 25 May in Toronto.
